Seems as of late one of my piggies tries to bite me when my fingers are around him like when i'm feeding them or giving them some veggies. Anyone have any ideas? :confused:

Guinea pigs have poor vision and it's not unusual for them to mistake fingers for carrots or other veggies, especially if you feed them a lot by hand.

so it's not because they might dislike me or don't like me feeding them by hand?

It could be, but I don't think it's likely. Pigs have pretty poor eyesight, and when you finish holding a carrot or a piece of lettuce, your hands also smell like carrot and lettuce. :)
